Here’s a quick note for all of you Partners in the U.S. Central Region Heartland Area.  Based on overwhelming partner feedback, The Heartland Area team has evolved the Heartland Partner Briefing Series into a new format that offers you a shortened event, packed full of valuable content, giving you the information you need and time back in the day to focus on your business!  In this spring round of events will be dedicated exclusively to Cloud Computing and the “Power of Choice”.  You’ll hear about how you can take the power of the cloud to your customers and integrate the Microsoft Online Services Offering for your customers as their needs evolve.

Here is a quick view of the agenda for these Partner briefings:

  • 8:15-9:00 AM - Registration and Networking: Continental Breakfast provided and the speakers will be available in advance for networking.
